Rangers and Blackhawks reveal terrible Stadium Series Uniforms

The New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks revealed their Stadium Series uniforms for their respective outdoor games and they are not good.  At least the Rangers had a hysterical video for their jersey reveal, because that’s about the only thing that’s good about it.  The dark blue in place of the normal Rangers blue is not a good look, nor is the “chrome” letters on the front.

The Blackhawks regular jersey’s are one of the best jerseys in hockey and this stadium series jersey is terrible. I don’t understand why everything has a chrome/shimmery logo and the cut of the jersey (not straight along the bottom) looks awful. Reebok has whiffed pretty hard this year with the Stadium Series jerseys.

    I managed to get a hold of the Hawks stadium series jersey, It’s not bad looking at all. It’s lightweight, very sleek, the design isn’t extremely impressive but it’s not so bad to merit a full article on how bad it is. The lettering font did change but very scarcely, it just looks bigger. Essentially this uniform is the hawks black alternate from 08-09 with a couple of differences to separate it from its counterpart. The striping on the bottom follows the fray(which I personally think is pretty damned awesome looking) the sleeve tubing is also slanted diagonally, and the blackhawk crest has the standard stadium series metallic design (which all teams did to honor the NHL crest’s own design). All in all the design isn’t a bad one at all and is least deserving of poor criticism. Looking at the Rangers design, that too actually looks pretty impressive and both jersey will draw in a lot of sales. The only thing I might change would be the metallic crests themselves…they’re a type of non-fabric, plastic type crest that is pretty stupid looking, The crest themselves aren’t sewn on the same as other crests but rather are merely traced via outline which gives the crest the look of an iron on pattern. With that in mind the jerseys are still fairly impressive and worth the purchase for collectors like myself.

      Admit it, you work for Reebok, don’t you?
